Domestic Workers, Hospitals.

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort. – in the House of Commons on 17th February 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. David Adams:

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that the shortage of domestic workers in hospitals still persists; that numbers of those who perform these duties for a time, move off into other occupations with the result that skilled nursing staff are increasingly being called upon to carry out domestic duties; and whether, in view of these facts, he will apply the Essential Work Order to domestic staffs in hospitals?

I have nothing to add to the reply given on 22nd January to my hon. Friend.

Mr. Adams:

Can I have some idea as to what that reply was?
